in Science Communication


Never in the history of mankind have so many people been working in the scientific realm. Information and knowledge are, for everyone with unrestricted Internet access, abundantly available. But at the same time, the grand challenges of humankind, like climate change, are pressing, and fake news and distrust in scientific institutions and methods are on the rise. In this chapter I address both internal and external science communication, and both science communication practices and research on science communication, to first put together the diagnoses of current developments, second collect trends and third sketch visions for the future.
